Editors' Review

+

Sony Vegas Pro dominates the space between basic video-editing software like Windows Movie Maker and professional applications like Adobe Premiere. Sony won this niche by offering professional tools and functions at a fraction of the competitors' prices. The latest version of Vegas Pro 12 adds a good deal of improvements to an already great video editor.

Pros

Packed full of features: With Vegas Pro, you can edit SD, HD, 2K, and 4K footage in either 2D or stereoscopic 3D. Sync material from multiple cameras using the multicam feature to add a little perspective to your movies. The celebrated masking abilities of Vegas Pro 11 is improved in 12, enabling you to refine your editing.

Universal file support: Vegas Pro 12 can import and export projects from other video editors, such as Resolve, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects.

Ready to play: The video editor just works. With its streamlined layout, anyone with basic knowledge of video editing or production can pick up and start using Vegas Pro. You'll have to peek at the manual to use advanced features, but there are enough tools set out to let you start cutting.

Cons

Dated interface: The Vegas Pro 12 UI, although easy to grasp, looks out of touch when compared to the UIs of Premiere or Final Cut. The overall layout appears very similar to that of the 2009 release, so Vegas Pro offers a lot familiarity for current users but might alienate new adopters.

Bottom Line

Incredibly functional but a little bland, Sony Vegas Pro 12 is designed for no-nonsense editors who want to get the job done right -- without all the frills. If you're a current Vegas Pro 11 user, updating is worthwhile for the stability alone. Newcomers can expect an easier learning curve. Sony has found a nice balance between function and price, coming in well ahead of main competitor Adobe Premiere in value. However, with the introduction of Adobe's Creative Cloud, arguments can be made for either app. Still, Vegas Pro 12 is a great choice for any price-conscious professional video editor.

"This is the stuff"

July 16, 2010  |  By gspnam

 |  Version: Vegas Pro (64-bit) 9.0e

Pros

Works as advertised.

Cons

Help needs work for NLE neophytes like myself, but to be fair this app probably isn't intended for those of my limited experience.

Summary

I have more experience with Adobe Premiere, but I'll be buying some version of Vegas.

With P you have to add a dissolve to every clip. With Vegas you just drag and overlap the clips and Wah-Lah!

I never did figure out how to delete the audio track and leave the video, but muted it didn't make any difference.

The rendered files (I only had time to edit two simple 3 minute videos over 30 days due to unexpected events) seemed to maintain all the resolution of the raw HD footage.

I suspect this is the best alternative to FCP for Win users.

(Additional Con which would not fit:
Revo Uninstaller did not detect the installation so I had to rely on Vegas to completely uninstall itself and lord only knows what it left behind.)

"Very powerful stuff"

July 12, 2009  |  By vmazelis

 |  Version: Vegas Pro 8.1

Pros

Tons of features and capabilities. Can do pretty much anything anyone can ever want (other than making lunch for you :)

Cons

The interface is very crowded, extremely busy. One needs a huge screen or a powerful magnifying glass to find what is needed. Also, takes a lot if timne to learn.

Summary

A very comprehensive software to edit and finalize all kinds of movies and videos. Vrowded and not a user-friendly interface and requires a lot of studying to be able to use it.
